As they say, go big or go home! Lipstick Queen Silver Screen Lipstick GOES big for Fall 2014 with a new, exciting formula that rivals upscale lipsticks far and wide.
In 2013, Lipstick Queen introduced a very upscale lipstick in the form of Velvet Rope Lipstick. At $50, it wasn’t a cheap lipstick and it was quite a price jump from what the brand is already known for. Needless to say it’s an incredibly luxurious lipstick with intense, dramatic pigmentation.
For Fall 2014, Lipstick Queen Silver Screen Lipstick takes on a new texture and formula with the same great pigmentation! Inspired by the silver screen this new formula provides a glossy, pigmented Hollywood worthy pout!
Lipstick Queen Silver Screen Lipstick comes housed in a square silver tube which gives it an old Hollywood vibe. The packaging is luxe, glamorous, and I’m pretty sure you won’t be shy about whipping it out of your purse for touch ups on the go.
I’m not a huge matte lipstick lover but the Velvet Rope Lipstick formula did change my mind about dramatic mattes that’s for sure. Obviously, much to my delight, I was excited that this time around Poppy King, the Lipstick Queen herself, decided to create a glossy, wet finish in her next lipstick launch. The glossiness of this new lipstick is achieved from an innovative new active ingredient Pomegranate Sterols. This 100% natural active, derived from the pomegranate fruit, improves the barrier-function of your lips and keeps them soft and hydrated while giving lips a glossy finish.
This lipstick has a balmy texture with a high sheen finish. The color is fully pigmented on a single application and provides a softening layer of lipstick that feels like I’m wearing a lip balm. I find it wears for around five hours and during that time it doesn’t feather nor does it migrate and it remains very pleasantly hydrating. I wouldn’t call it intensely glossy but it does have a very high sheen which gives it the illusion of a nice glossiness. It does have a subtle minty flavor and fragrance which I find quite pleasant and shouldn’t disturb sensitive users too much!

Needless to say Lipstick Queen Silver Screen Lipstick doesn’t disappoint. Yes, $50 may seem a lot for a single lipstick but truly there’s a lot of amazing that goes into this packaging and incredible formula. These do NOT disappoint!
